MIT Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to encouraging MIT undergraduate and graduate students to volunteer with Habitat, and to increasing awareness of the global housing crisis on campus.
We hold “build days” one Saturday per month, in which 10-15 volunteers can spend the day working on a local Habitat house. Each year, we also send 10 volunteers on a spring break trip to work with a Habitat affiliate somewhere in the United States.
Events that we hold on campus include an annual Campus Build each spring (featuring the Cardboard House Building Competition) as well as an annual 5K competition, the Beaver Dash, in the fall to raise money for building Habitat homes.
To view a sampling of some of the events MIT Habitat for Humanity sponsors, we invite you to watch a brief photo montage here.
Although Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization, the MIT Club of Habitat for Humanity is secular and welcomes students of all backgrounds and faiths. Also, no construction experience is required! Anyone and everyone are welcome to join us at our events and builds!
Hope to see you there!
